    Default punteado

    I'm not talking about music, but engraving. So, the sentence is:

    Aquatinta
    Técnica empleada en combinación con otras para conseguir tonos planos y texturas diversas como el punteado, al lápiz, la manera nera (negra), mezzotinto o al humo


    My attempt:

    Technique used in combination with others to obtain flat tones and diverse textures like the punteado (dotting) one, the pencil, the nera way (black), mezzotinto or the smoke

    Aquatint:
    A technique (often) used in combination with others to obtain flat tones and diverse textures such as dots, pencil-like marks, maniera nera (etched dots so small and numerous they appear black), mezzotint, or smoke-like effects.

    Pero a mí, todo de eso es nuevo. No soy ningún artista. Aprendí mucho buscando las palabras.

    I've seen punteado used to mean perforations. I'm just guessing.

    ¡Fantástico!
    Ésta me hacía mucha falta, y además me sirve para arreglar unas cuantas frases que tenía 'durmientes'.

    Gracias, pero en lugar de “dots” será mejor usar “pits”. Estos son huequitos.
